Three teens arrested after Delta stabbing leaves 18-year-old in critical condition

Trio of youths are facing charges of aggravated assault after altercation at Burnsview Secondary School.

Three young people have been arrested after a stabbing over the weekend at a Delta secondary school.

On Saturday, just after 11 p.m., police were called to Burnsview Secondary after reports of an altercation behind the school in the 7600-block of 112 Street.

When police arrived, they found an 18-year-old male suffering from significant, multiple stab wounds.

He was taken to hospital in critical condition.

Delta Police officers arrested three male suspects under the age of 18 who were attempting to flee the area.

The suspects are in custody and under the provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act their names will not be released publicly. They are facing charges of aggravated assault.

Investigators are confident there is no connection between the fight and the school. The victim and the suspects are known to each other and police say it appears to be an isolated incident – a disagreement between teenagers that unfortunately escalated to an extreme level.

The victim remains in hospital in critical but stable condition.
